Backseat Driving with Ford Driver Assist

Backseat Drivers are Stopped by Ford Driver Assist Technology

Those who are annoyed by nagging backseat drivers have reason to rejoice. American auto manufacturer Ford anticipates that its release of the Ford Co-Pilot360 driver-assist technology will help drivers navigate the roads more confidently. A recent study conducted by Ford indicated 68% of drivers believe backseat driving behavior will decrease as a result of the implementation of driver-assist technology.

Creating a More Harmonious Ride

Ford Co-pilot 360 technology will include Blind Spot Information System with cross-traffic alert and Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking which can help reduce the risk of accidents and improve driver confidence while still allowing the driver to remain in control. Commenting on the study, a sociologist confirmed that backseat driving can cause more harm than good to the safety and well-being of vehicle occupants.

For many drivers, receiving unwanted advice from passengers can be stressful and distracting. Co-Pilot 360 facilitates trust by creating a more collaborative environment inside the vehicle. Insight from the study suggests that while backseat driving can strain relationships among those inside the vehicle, driver-assist technology can help eliminate unnecessary banter from the backseat.

While the technology assists with some of the more stressful aspects of navigating, drivers and passengers are able to focus more on enjoying the ride and engaging in more favorable communication with each other. Data from the study also suggest that because drivers and passengers tend to have confidence in technology, Co-Pilot 360 can eliminate the perceived need for backseat feedback on the driver's behavior.
